Taos First Steps, a program of Holy Cross Hospital, Teaches Parents and Caregivers techniques and Benefits of Infant Massage. All 10 of the First Steps home visitors have recently completed infant massage training through the International Institute of Infant Massage in Albuquerque. The training is a very full experience designed to train instructors to teach infant touch and massage to parents and caregivers.
Through the Institute the First Steps Home Visitors complete the certification process, which includes participation in a four-day training program. They are now in the process of completing a peer review take-home exam, which includes a practicum of teaching five families throughout the next four month period.
